Prince Harry criticizes Joe Rogan for spreading misinformation about COVID-19 vaccines


Prince Harry wasn’t happy with the comments podcast host and comedian Joe Rogan made about the coronavirus vaccine.

The Duke of Sussex, who appeared on Dax Shepard and Monica Padman’s Armchair Expert podcast Thursday, slammed Rogan for spreading misinformation.

“The problem in today’s world is that misinformation is endemic. You have to be careful of what comes out of your mouth,” Harry said.

The royal family added that “with a platform comes responsibility” and it is better for those with no professional knowledge or expertise to “stay out of it”.

JOE ROGAN RETRACTS CORONAVIRUS VACCINE COMMENTS

Rogan, who was previously asked on his popular Spotify podcast “The Joe Rogan Experience” whether young, healthy people need to be vaccinated.

“If you are 21 years old and you say to me, ‘Should I get vaccinated?’ I will go no. If you are a healthy person and exercise all the time, are young and eat well, you don’t have to worry about that, “Rogan told the audience.

He later went back to his comments.

Rogan, 53, stated, “I’m not a doctor. I’m an idiot. I’m a cage fight commentator … I’m not a reputable source of information myself. But at least I try to be honest with what I say.”

The Duke recently chaired the campaign for VAX Live: The World Reunification Concert by Global Citizen and spoke about the importance of vaccination.

“So many things have been politicized over the years, but when we talk about life and death – which we are talking about now – vaccines cannot be politicized,” he said. “Being able to come together as humans, as humans, is the way we can get out of it, and we have to make sure everyone around the world has equal access to the vaccine or none of it will work.”

“What we love about podcasting is that it reminds us all to take a moment and really listen, without the distraction to connect with each other. With the challenges of 2020, there has never been a more important time to do it than when we hear each other and hear each other’s stories. We are reminded of how closely we are all connected, “Harry and Markle said in a joint statement from Fox News.

The couple said they wanted to “bring out different perspectives and voices”.
